What is Onomatopoeia?

  Onomatopoeia is the imitation of natural sounds in a word form like in the following poem.
Onomatopoeia
by Eve Merriam

The rusty spigot
sputters,
utters
a splutter,
spatters a smattering of drops,
gashes wider;
slash
splatters
scatters
spurts
finally stops sputtering
and plash!
gushes rushes splashes
clear water dashes.
